On Sunday, 4/14/2013, cyclists affiliated with Time's Up once again took to the streets of NYC with stencils and spray paint. Last month, the group targeted 8 locations where pedestrians and cyclists were killed by automobiles over the last year.

TIME'S UP! and other groups are spreading the word to ride together. By riding with your friend or buddy, it immediately becomes safer. By teaming up with a third person, it becomes even safer. Ride to work together and ride home together. When you see another rider, be friendly and link up. Ride to the beach together!

TIME'S UP! organizes a number of rides. Generally someone had an idea for a ride, got together with others, and made it happen. Some are a little more involved, working with environmental, community garden, and youth groups.

Critical Mass is a movement, not an organization; no two riders participate for exactly the same reason. Brooklyn Critical Mass started rolling in 2004.

The East River. Cool off on the waterfront and see how the Big Apple is Water City on rides in our Blue Apple series. Guided by waterfront experts, all rides in this series will show you how the rivers, creeks, and bays of New York are revitalizing. Visit new parks and public places, and pockets of the city from ages past.

Check back for new ride listings. Past rides have included the:

Community Garden Tours

Times Up has always combined music to fuel the revolution.

Over the years our sound bikes and marching bands have helped to reclaim open spaces for the public and create more community gardens as well as, auto free plazas in the streets. We dance in the street, in our community spaces and parks. All different types of theme rides occur. Dress appropriate, be prepared to shake your booty, and reclaim public space.
